Nokia Lumia 822

Verge Review

Nokia's focus with Windows Phone 8 might be on its Lumia 920 handset, but the Lumia 820 might be even more appealing but for those looking at smaller and lower-cost options. It’s a promising handset that will be available in several variations on US networks, with near-identical internals but different outer casing designs. With a 4.3-inch ClearBlack display, removable wireless charging shells, microSD storage, and a removable battery — the Lumia 820 is clearly aimed at smartphone buyers who...

    I was very excited to get the Nokia Lumia 822 and ditch my old iPhone 4. After 24 hours with my new 822 I ran back to my iPhone 4. I hated the width of the device. It felt odd in my hand and very large in my pocket (I bought online and didn't hold in store first). My main issues, despite form factor, were software issues. As of this writing, these issues have mostly been corrected with the GDR2 software update. The only items not addressed were email syncing, image downloads in emails, and email and text syncing. Overall, I love what Microsoft is doing with Windows Phone 8, but believe it needs more time to mature before it will be a big hit with consumers to compete with the likes of Apple and Android. If considering a Windows Phone device on Verizon go with the Nokia Lumia 928 over this and other WP8 devices Verizon offers.
